Light! Angle! Action!

Take a look at this video of the Seward Library in Seward, Alaska. It prominently features bright finish, stainless steel Millennium Flat Tiles in Peacock.

This video, taken by our Alaska Sales Representative, Exterior Building Technologies, allows one to see how magical and alive our permanently colored stainless steel tiles can be. The perceived color is different depending upon light, viewing angle, time-of-day, etc.

(The installer could have mixed the tiles a bit better, but we still like this job; especially the color-coordinated mural. We hear that tourists arriving on summer cruise ships are in awe; stopping to snap photos of this work-of-art!)

Can we help you with your next work-of-art? Give us a call or email today!

Milwaukee Art Museum Drone Video

Take a look...we're quite proud of this new project featuring a custom Bronze Stainless Steel Reveal Panel rainscreen system with a Sharkskin finish.

A quick 45 minutes northeast of us, the Milwaukee Art Museum addition and renovation was designed by HGA's Milwaukee office. Along the shores of great Lake Michigan, we think this early morning drone video expertly shows the beauty of our Colored Stainless Steel: elegant, durable, unique. While it may be three shades of Bronze, the color is ever-changing depending upon your viewing angle and the amount of natural light. What other facade material can give you this unique feature?!?!

Give us a call today to discuss your next project.

Millennium Tiles Rising

We've produced and shipped quite a few projects this year and the photos are just starting to roll in as construction season wraps up. Enjoy these progress photos while we await the official grand openings. Like what you see? Give us a call or completed our Project Application form for more information.

Please notice the hat-channels being used for the tile installation. This is one of the biggest questions we get: can your tiles be installed over exterior insulation? Why yes, they sure can: just use furring strips, hat channels or Z's.

FALL into color

Here is the latest email blast from the offices of Millennium Tiles. The fall colors have peaked, according to the meteorologists, but we're still enjoying nature's fall show in the fields and hillsides around us here in southeastern Wisconsin. Like what you see?
